After months of speculation, the NFL draft is finally here. As is normal, Florida State has a lot of former players who are projected to be drafted, and in case you don’t want to watch the entire draft, we here at Armchair FSU have you covered. Check back here periodically throughout the rest of the draft to see where your favorite former Seminoles end up.

Day 1

Derwin James drafted by Chargers with the 17th pick (1st Round)

It was extremely surprising to see a player of James’ caliber fall that far in the first round, but the Chargers definitely aren’t complaining. Gus Bradley, the LA defensive coordinator, was the architect of the Legion of Boom back in Seattle, and he might have just got a younger version of Kam Chancellor. Derwin is fantastic in man-to-man coverage and has gotten better at playing the deep zone at safety. If James plays to what is expected of him, he might go down as the biggest steal of the draft.

Day 2

Derrick Nnadi drafted by the Chiefs with the 75th Pick (3rd Round)

The second Seminole came off the draft board tonight as Derrick Nnadi was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 3rd round. Nnadi finished his career at Florida State with 165 total tackles, 24 TFLs, and 12.0 sacks. He was selected in a mid-round like many analysts projected, and many figure Nnadi will most likely serve as a nose tackle in the NFL, similar to that of Chris Baker.

I always wanted to be an NFL player, but 5’11 lineman normally don’t get drafted, unless their name is Aaron Donald. Most likely I’ve already peaked in high school. I love all kinds of sports, but I write about FSU for Armchair, where I also attend school. Yes, Florida State is better than your favorite school in whatever sport you name (that includes water polo). Don’t ever play me in Madden or 2k, otherwise, I’ll put you to shame. I’m at tscheetos on Xbox, come at me. Follow me on twitter at @samtschida67 for hot football takes and other dumb tweets.
